Anzhi Makhachkala are chasing England midfield pair Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.

After signing Samuel Eto'o from Inter Milan and having Roberto Carlos in their line-up, Anzhi are now planning bids for Chelsea veteran Lampard, 33, and Liverpool captain Gerrard.

Rossiyskaya Gazeta says Anzhi owner Suleyman Kerimov is willing to offer both players £12 million-a-year to quit their respective Premier League clubs and move to Russia in January.

A trump card could be England coach Fabio Capello, who is also on Kerimov's shopping list.
